Mr. Eggs and His Amazing World of Cat Illustrations

This smoosh-face gentleman cat is helping his human taking over Instagram with his cat art.

Mr. Eggs is an Exotic Shorthair who packs a sterling smoosh face and is on the rise as an Instagram celebrity. Part of Eggs’ appeal is the shenanigans he gets himself into — which his human captures with photographic aplomb. But there’s also another side to Eggs’ character, as he seems to be quite the cat art connoisseur.

To that end, he’s coaxed his human into creating some slick illustrations of his favorite Internet cats. Eventually, the artwork will be magically spliced together in the form of a feline-themed scarf. While you follow the progress of what’s being tagged “the CataminProject” over at Instagram, check out this primer on the escapades of Mr. Eggs. He’s quite the character, it must be said.

Meet Mr. Eggs. Here this chirpy chap has managed to finagle himself into a vintage double-ears-back situation. What a cad!

Here’s my old friend Stalin the Dictator, something of the natural heir to the dearly departed feline leader Colonel Meow. His glorious mustache positively springs to life in illustrated form.

Sometimes the caption says it all: “Classic frisky Eggs.” (That would also make a great name for an overpriced brunch dish.)

There’s nothing finer than a refined feline who enjoys a bottle of the ol’ vino at the end of an afternoon. Here Mr. Eggs is plumping for a cabernet sauvignon — and has dressed for a formal affair.

This series of images of a freshly dunked Mr. Eggs would be a lot funnier if the caption didn’t reveal that it was part of a plan to get rid of a family of fleas who happened to decide that the Eggster’s fluff-tastic fur would make for a comfortable abode. I’m assuming at this point the offending fleas were successfully dispatched with.

This illustration showcases Sauerkraut, a kitty with a beguiling pair of blue eyes. You’ll be hearing more about Miss. Sauerkraut on Catster very soon.

And on that note we should probably wrap up this little photo jaunt …
